Deconstructing the Highly Sensitve Person: Part One

There are a great many perspectives to take when it comes to Highly Sensitive People and Empaths. For one, you can see it through a psychic lens, watching the flow of energy from one point to another, or you can view it through a religious lens, the ability of discernment. However, for the scope of this blog, I'll take a scientific and psychological perspective. I'll break down the causes and effects of being Highly Sensitive, as well as examine exactly how it all works to make one empathic, as opposed to empathetic.

The Abusive Empath

In the blog The Abused Empath we talked about Empaths who have a tendency to come from abusive situations, be it from a home life, a loved one, or even a stranger. We talked about the potential long term effects that abuse can have on people.

In the same vein, I think it is equally important to talk about the other side of this through the Abusive Empath. Now I know this kind of seems like an oxymoron, given what most people presume an Empath is. How can they be abusive? Aren't they more likely, as people who are hypersensitive people pleasers, to be abused instead?

But we come back to the most basic fact which is that Empaths are human beings who go through any number of life long human experiences which carry with them the potential to condition them into certain kinds of behaviors. So we are going to explore this uncomfortable topic in more detail, because it is an important one to understand.

Crossing the bridge of pain

Every step on this bridge is so hard to take.. It looks like it sucks my energy and my legs are so heavy to lift. The closer I get the painful this journey has become. This bridge, how long it will take to cross? Flames and then blizzards, there is no end to this.. But I must hold on, I will try to take one more step and one more step.. and one step at a time ..I will cross the bridge.

This mist will melt when flames come.. Snow will fall to cool me then.. I suffered every minute to cross this goal..  I blamed my self and blamed every one... I saw me in reflections around me.. I never closed my eyes to look inside me.. I looked down up on myself, I stood in line with ones that made me... And I see the one who pained me.. Hmm alas its none other than me..

Pain is something no one can avoid, if they are born in this world. Pain is not something that you choose to worship. It takes a lot of time to find peace with your pain. But it is important to know, what is soaking your feet.. It's important to become free from the pain itself. Don't stand in the line with others to sympathize, comment, ridicule, hate or anything likes..Don't be a burden to your own self..

Be one with your self.. Its OK to be you.. It's better if you are some one better than you are . Cross the bridge of pain..

Remembering every one who helped me to find my peace.. in love

Empaths: The Mourning After

Recently people have come to me with questions about grieving.  They've asked how one gets over the lose of someone they love.  How does one move on from a breakup with a loved one?  How does one move beyond mourning when a loved one passes away? How does one walk away, effectively cutting a connection, when friends become toxic and disparaging?

I'd like to say this is an Empath issue, because people who are emotionally hypersensitive feel this kind of pain more acutely than others, in a much deeper way.  But alas, this is not so.  Everyone suffers this whether it is through death, breakup or the end of a friendship.
